CSC Selects VMTurbo Operations Manager to Deliver Against Increasing Demand for Cloud

VMTurbo, the leading provider of intelligent workload management software for cloud and virtualized environments, today announced that CSC (NYSE: CSC), a market leading cloud service provider, selected VMTurbo as an operations management solution for its public, private and hybrid cloud offerings. CSC is utilizing VMTurbo Operations Manager to automate intelligent resource allocation and workload placement decisions – ensuring service availability, operational efficiency, and optimal utilization for commercial and government enterprise cloud customers.

“Service level assurance is at the heart of CSC’s value proposition to enterprise cloud customers and VMTurbo’s intelligent placement of workloads and ability to allocate resources based on application performance and business priorities enables us to provide reliable commercial and government cloud services,” said Eli Almog, chief technology officer for CSC Cloud Services. “CSC BizCloud and CSC CloudCompute, both VMware vCloud Datacenter Services, provide infrastructure as a service for doing real business on the cloud. We did a thorough competitive analysis and determined that VMTurbo’s sophisticated analytics engine and its API integration to vCloud Director and Cisco UCS made it the right choice for CSC’s enterprise cloud.”

Virtualized data centers and cloud infrastructures require a different approach for operations management. VMTurbo delivers a cloud-scale control plane that identifies constraints and automates resource allocation decisions to optimize utilization and meet SLAs. The technology addresses resource contention before problems occur, makes certain that applications have the resources they require, and ensures the infrastructure is utilized in the most efficient way possible.

“As a leading service and business solution provider to some of the most sophisticated customers across the globe, CSC understands what it takes to ensure customers experience optimal performance for critical services,” said Lou Shipley, president and chief executive officer of VMTurbo. “We are excited to be working with CSC to deliver an improved operational model for cloud environments, one where our technology automates intelligent allocation and placement decisions without requiring manual intervention to prevent performance issues and ensure optimal use of the underlying infrastructure.”

At the heart of VMTurbo’s value proposition is the Economic Scheduling Engine which drives efficiency and optimal resource utilization, reduces operations costs, and enables cloud service providers, like CSC, to intelligently plan virtualization initiatives. The VMTurbo Operations Manager solution delivers critical capabilities such as multi-tenancy support, service provider scale, and open API integration to critical sophisticated cloud infrastructures built on VMware vCloud Director and Cisco UCS.
